Move over, JFK Jr. TV Guide said viewers are tuning in and turning on to a new breed of cuddly "un-hunks," including John Goodman of "Roseanne" and David Caruso of "NYPD Blue." Topping the editors' list of unlikely sex symbols is the red-haired Caruso, who plays police detective John Kelly on the new ABC show. He was dubbed "sex symbol of the season" by TV Guide and featured on its Jan. 8 cover. Others noted for hearts of gold rather than buns of steel are Tim Allen of "Home Improvement," Thomas Haden Church of "Wings," Dave Thomas of "Grace Under Fire," John Mendoza of "The Second Half," Michael Chiklis of "The Commish" and Graham Greene of "Northern Exposure." Alan Rosenberg, mild-mannered lawyer Eli Levinson on "L.A. Law," was also on the list. His character may have what women want most of all. "Eli listens to women," Rosenberg said.
